Do I need to update a SELP1650 lens for use with an A6000 camera?

I already have a SELP1650 lens from a previous purchase and recently bought an A6000 body. The instructions that came with the camera say to make sure the lens firmware is updated to version 2, but it looks like mine is still version 1. I don't see a firmware update on the Sony site, though. Do I need one?

The Firmware Support page for the A6000 lists lens firmware updates, version 2, for several lenses, but the SELP1650 isn't among them.

Perhaps you should check the lens firmware update page for your earlier camera.
